Signs of Spring

Signs of spring are popping up all over. The yard has been filled with birds and squirrels. Every year a robin follows me as I weed. I don’t know how long robins live, so I have no idea if it’s the same one each year or not.

The daffodils are blooming in the fairy garden.

And by the greenhouse. I have no clue where this white daffodil came from.

And the Tete-a-Tete mini daffodils...

The Hellebore is still blooming like crazy. Man, I love this thing.

The Scilla Sibirica (Spring Beauty) is showing it’s pretty little, blue self.

After a heavy rain, the bleeding hearts shot up as if out of nowhere.

Path by the greenhouse.

The peonies are popping up. They look so red when they first come out of the ground.


This hen and chicks succulent survived the winter.

 As did this one.

I love seeing everything grow and turn green in the flower garden in the spring.

The lawn is lush green after the recent rains we had.

The back yard.

Looking from the very back of the yard towards the house and shed.

Here’s a sure sign of spring — I started planting my seeds today under row covers in the kitchen garden.

The front porch is decked out for spring.

Tulip and primrose along with daffodils.

More spring on the front porch – tulip, daffodils, and grape hyacinths.

Another sign of spring — Molly and Izzy spend a lot more time out on the screened-in back porch.

Ok, so they aren’t plants and flowers, but hey, aren’t they cute? They LOVE that the warmer weather is here. Happy Spring!
